“Playwright Pitches”

Back by popular demand! TPS will continue to provide opportunities for select playwrights to introduce themselves and their work to auditors of the 2024 TPS Unified General Auditions. Playwrights are encouraged to submit their materials for consideration for a “Playwright Pitch”. Playwrights will be selected by a committee of professional playwright members of from our community. Those not selected for in-person pitches, or those interested in being represented in the Digital Binder but not interested in presenting in person are welcome to submit their information for a reduced price.

The Digital Binder is an online resource library provided to all auditors of the Unified General Auditions and all attending organizations of the Tech & Design Fair. This binder will include the information of all In Person and digitally submitted Playwright pitches. This serves as an ongoing resource for Organizations to find the skill and materials they need to produce the amazing performing art works in the Puget Sound.

Those playwrights selected to do in-person “Playwright Pitches” will have a registration fee of $15.

Those selected for or opting for the Digital Binder will have a registration fee of $10.

Monologue Library

TPS works hard to connect art makers in the Puget Sound. One way that we do this is by collecting monologues written by local area playwrights for exclusive use by our auditioners of the Unified General Auditions. These monologues live in a password protected library on the UGA website, and those registered to audition at the UGAs are given access to select monologues to prepare and present for the Auditors. Playwrights will be credited for their work at the beginning of the audition where their work is being used. Playwrights submitting their work will also appear in the Digital Binder of resources for Auditors and Attendees of the Tech and Design Job Fair.

*Stay tuned and get your full length, new and unproduced works ready for TPS’s first ever script competition debuting in 2024. More information to be announced on the first day of the 2024 UGAs (February 26th).
